No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes
For the crusts:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
For the filling:
1 cup heavy whipping cream, plus extra for topping
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8-oz.) package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups box brownie mix (the powder)
2 tablespoons milk
mini chocolate chips for garnish (optional)
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients for crusts together until moist. Divide evenly between 4 serving dishes and press into the bottoms and up the sides about half an inch. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whip 1 cup cream with powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spoon out of mixing bowl and set aside.
Place cream cheese, brownie mix, and milk into same mixing bowl the cream was just in and whip until smooth.
Gently fold in half the whipped cream. Spoon or pipe over top the crusts. Top with remaining whipped cream.
